RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

This route has been referred to as "steep splitter hands." While this is an accurate depiction of the final moves, the meat of the route is wide stemming and a crank on small, somewhat crumbly holds leading into a quick section of pumpy fingers and off-fingers. The steep splitter hands that follow are a relief. On the whole the Sting is an interesting and challenging Wingate route.

Location

A couple minutes walk left of Cactus Flower on the NW facing portion of the cliff. The Sting climbs the front of an 80 ft. pillar with an offwidth on its right side called Bar Exam.

Protection

Doubles to #2 camalot with some nuts and a quick draw.

this is a pretty weird route for the creek. it almost climbs more like a route at red rocks. the crux has an improbable feel to it, but once you commit to doing something that you feel you shouldn't be doing in the desert (like yanking for dear life on a crimp), it ends up working out ok. the start is slightly sketchy, and the finish is fantastic but short.
